The City Rises #076

Been waiting awhile for this one. Rambl behind the desk, with a trip through the cosmos! How appropriate to have a photograph of The Sun Ra Arkestra playing a free concert in Melbourne’s Federation Square for the opening of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival. It was quite a show, too! 40 minutes of the most astounding, swinging and beautiful space jazz from the masters of the art. Look out for our stings from Arkestra member Knoel Scott, taking TCR into truly cosmic territory.

Speaking of, we started the week with a cut from another space jazz cat, Marcus Belgrave, who also worked with techno luminary Carl Craig. His jam Space Odyssey comes from his 1974 album, Gemini II. Check it. Also played the amazing Fantastic Mr Fox remix of Brandy’s Angel In Disguise and dedicated it to my super-hip friend, Izabel. Plus loads of the usual guff you’d expect from your cosmic co-travellers, The City Rises.
